Post: What if?

    A teacher were to have a bumper sticker on his or her car
    which read: "War with Iraq. NO!" OR one which read "Let's
    kick Iraqi a$$"." Would said teacher be required to remove
    said bumper sticker? Would the teacher be able to park on
    school property where students might be able to see the
    bumper sticker? Where does a teacher's own civil rights
    end and begin?

    What if I live in the same small town where I teach and I
    choose to post a huge political campaign sign in my yard
    (which I did during the last election mind you) where the
    world can see it including my literate students? What if
    they asked me about said sign? Even if I refuse to discuss
    it on school property (which I do) the students (because
    they are literate and thoughtful) might know exactly where
    I stand on the war issue and our esteemed president. What
    then? Must I no longer participate in the political
    process like other Americans so I don't taint my students
    with my opinion?
